San Diego, California. August 30th 2018 — According to a 2018 statement from the White House, cyber-attacks cost the U.S. economy upwards of $109 billion in 2016. In response to the escalating nature of these incidents, many companies are now hiring so-called ethical hackers to assess their virtual defenses. Job platform Joblift recently analyzed all 3,769 online job ads for ethical hackers from the last 12 months and found that they grew by a monthly average of 4%. Public interest in the profession is also rapidly growing, which could be good news for U.S. companies, as America is more vulnerable to data breaches than any other country in the world.
